Caring for Enameled Fly Lines

Enameled fly-lines need not be the object of so much solicitation to the fly-caster as are the fine un-waterproofed casting lines to the bait-caster. But the enameled line should not be neglected or abused. It may be sufficiently dried by running it through a cloth held in the hand, and this will also tend to keep it straight and free from tight coils caused by being wound upon the reel, as a result of which the line will work better in casting. If occasionally dressed with deer fat the line will work better and last longer. For smoothing and polishing enameled lines tournament casters use powdered graphite. During the winter the line should not be kept tightly coiled on the reel.

Good quality level enameled lines cost about $1.75 for 25 yards size E. The cost varies slightly with the different dealers and for the various sizes. An average price for a 30-yard double-tapered line, size E, is $2.50. Very fine quality double tapered lines for tournament work cost rather more; say, $4.00 for 40 yards. All the best dealers carry lines of excellent quality in the best grades, all about equally good. A very excellent fly line is the English soft-enamel line. By some they are considered superior to the American lines. So far as the writer knows, only one American firm, located in New York, regularly supplies these lines. They are furnished only in double-taper.

If your fishing trip will take you far from the tackle shops have a reserve line on the reserve reel.

It is a good deal better to be prepared than to have to borrow from a friend especially when, as most often happens, the friend is not in a position to lend.
